and end with the obama administration that concentrates what they have done. when you see it altogether you are shocked. >> we started with solyndra and fast and furious and benghazi scandal when you were doing the film. >> it's the same time of thing. >> the media can only cover so much about the scandals. this is the first time people will have an opportunity to see a sustained discussion of important issues. we cover a lot of it but now we know there are hundreds of others, mexicans who were killed as a result of these guns. this movie is the first long term discussion of this important scandal. >> sean: we'll get into this in more detail but in the case of fast and furious, our government gave guns to gang members, cartels, drug dealers, we didn't track them and they result in the deaths of a lot of people including a border agent. when we are looking for information executive privilege is invoked. transparent administration? >> this is less transparent than the bush administration. they fight us on virtually every document request we've made. we've made almost a thousand. we filed

by the obama administration for brokering a ceasefire in gaza, and now the white house is silent on the more -- coupe. middle east expert professor hoover institute senior fellow "wall street journal" as columnist among our guests here tonight. we begin with the president's broad based strategy to conduct our right class warfare against the republican party on the issue of taxes and the fiscal cliff. the white house today released a report from the council of economic advisers. that report claims that if republican lawmakers don't accept the president's fiscal proposals they would be responsible for destroying christmas for the nation's retail sector. the national retail federation is forecasting that holiday sales will grow. if congress does not act on the president's plan to extend tax cuts for the middle-class and jobs in our economy at the most important time of the year for retail stores. as the president uses similar scare tactics to bully republicans into a deal press secretary jay carney today made clear where the president himself simply refuses to compromise. >> there are issues th
and republican administrations here, and president obama said, he wasn't sure if egypt was still an ally. he was on the phone again today with president obama morsi who has turned out to be someone brokering the cease-fire and a meeting with secretary clinton and others and there is still pressure on president morsi, three republican senators, today, put out a statement, saying it is time for egypt to stop allowing the spread of weapons of hamas through egypt, from senatorred john mccain and graham and others, asking him to urge the stop of the spread of weapons to sinai which is a threat to egypt's national security and sovereignty. a couple days ago senator graham, one of the three senators, threatened president morsi and said unless you take a month positive role here in this exploding situation in the middle east, republicans in congress will cut off united states aid to egypt and the president morsi responded by helping to broker this cease-fire, and now we will see how he will respond to some more of these threats. it is clear that washington, dc is watching the performance of the egyp
. this is a problem that i think the obama administration faces. they'll have to go out and make a better opportunity in terms of publicizing what these changes mean, exactly how it affects individuals, and how they sign up for it. >> okay. final word to you, niail. do you think the work stoppage affects things or not? >> i'm afraid i didn't hear the question. >> in terms of those picketing and protesting all this, do you think that will have long-term change and effect? >> not in terms of the health care law. i think the health care law will be in congress at this point. i think as david pointed out, that the republicans are trying to maneuver toward making more congressional action now that full repeal seems to be off the table. obviously the supreme court backed the law. and also the benefits of the health care reform will go into effect at even -- more so in the coming year. i think that will help from the obama administration's perspective to make the sglas all right. niall, david, thank you very much. happy thanksgiving. >> you, too, alex. >>> kenny chesney with a sneak peek on the way he's spe
are back, we have a role to play in a second obama administration. this is holiday week and you will see it. >> thank you very much. we appreciate it. gregg: twinkie lovers. sorry, no deal. an attempted mediation has failed. now the company is asking a judge to liquidate its operations. a union lawyer wouldn't comment on the sticking points. the baker's union rejected a 5-year deal including an 8% wage cut. hostess filed for bankruptcy saying it has $1.3 billion in debt. we'll have more later on in the program. >> a run on hostess products across the country. folks lining up to buy twinkies, ding dongs, ho-hos and all those sweet treated before they disappear. >> my daughter wants twinkies. >> how many bags do you think you have? >> i have four bags. donuts and pies. my husband wanted me to buy some for him to take to work. >> even if hostess goes out of business its popular snacks will likely live on. a long shelf li. several potential buyers have expressed interest in the brand. gregg: did you eat twinkies as a kid? >> i did not but in my adult life i had a fried twinkie. gregg: i like th
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
. a discussion of u.s. energy efforts and the energy policy of the obama administration in the next four years. >> we want to welcome back to our table, president and c.e.o. of the american petroleum institute. let's go back to campaign 2012. the american petroleum institute spent about $868,000 on the 2012 campaign cycle. total contributions, $650,000. contributions to candidates around $220,000. given that you spent a lot on republican governor mitt romney's bid spent more towards republicans, how will this impact your ability to communicate with the white house and the congress? what do you think your relationship will be like? guest: we ran a vote for energy campaign, which was focused on elevating energy to be a top draw issue. we believe was highly successful. both candidates were both giving a full endorsement of oil and natural gas as a key form of energy here in the united states to create jobs and help with our economic recovery. overall, the dollars we spent were not partisan in nature. we weren't supporting one candidate over the other, our candidate was energy and focused on eleva
in an knee duncan tomorrow. maybe he'll disagree. my my view, the obama administration has made the key priority clear. republicans in the same place. they are contemplating if they are antifederal wing neater are too extreme. we'll see if the administration proposes new reform. i would look for a shift to implement tight as i mentioned every oversight of things like raising the top, the waiver at the department granted, i understand the department is looking to release new rules on teacher preparation accountability. i think a much needed evaluator there regardless what those rules are, it seems to me this area is right for cooperation between senator right and the senator left i also know that secretary duncan has said a few times he wishes he has done more on childhood education. that means bite -- fighting on two fronts. choosing policy winds and building the infrastructure to support them. recognizing new e -- we have to do both the things to get the policy right but build the organization. to get that policy first implemented and then sustained over the long-term. the ground is sh

relationship. what side is the obama administration taking in this crisis? >> reporter: well, u.s. criticism so far has been extremely muted. some people here in egypt are disappointed by that. the u.s. government is really in a tricky situation because it's relying on president morsi to help with peace efforts in the israeli-palestinian conflict. last week he helped broker a truce between hamas and israel. so we're back in the same situation we had under the old dictatorship which is that the u.s. can't be to overtly critical because it relies on egypt's help here in the middle east. >> holly williams in cairo for us this morning. thank you so much. let's take a quick break. when we come back the latest on the civil war in syria including a report from one city at the center of the conflict. later, would be millionaires line up for a chance at tonight's historic powerball lottery drawing. this is the "cbs morning news." powerball lottery drawing. this is the "cbs morning news." or visit exelonpatchoffer2.com. cool, you found it. wow. nice place. yeah.

that we need to change our healthcare system and that the obama administration and congress took a good step forward in doing the right thing. it is something that the republicans haven't done ever. so i think that it became a political fight and they ignore would the fact there's some decent policy in there. and now they haven't read the bill. they haven't done their homework. they've regurgitated talking points for so long -- >> stephanie: yep. >> they're behind the eight ball. none of them know what to do because they have to admit they were wrong. >> stephanie: they've succeeded in confusing a lot of americans about what's in there. >> they're confused. i don't think any of them really understand what it is we're doing and why we're doing it. i really believe that these people need to kind of sit down -- take it on the plane with you. >> stephanie: right. light reading on the plane for your holiday visit. i can only take so many calls for jacki schechner. we can't clear up all of the confusion on this s

administration has failed to respond to at least a dozen congressional letters adding that the obama white house was keen on the obama raid and should offer the same transparency on benghazi. unfair to the american people and the families of the victims of the benghazi attack to not provide the same level of defailed facts in an accounting for what i consider a major national security failure. on thursday last week, a classified section. fox news told that james clapper hid of the u.s. intelligence community was definite. his team did not make controversial changes to the talking points used by ambassador susan rice. critics say the changes like taking out the word at divide played down the terrorism angle. on tuesday this week in a total reversal. clapper's office says they were responsible for the changes. >> i think clapper has to say and has to say publicly whether he advocated the youtube video theory, whether he pressed it on the white house and others in the intelligence community, and, if so, did he do that at the direction of the white house? >> democrats accused the republicans of poli

live at the white house for us now. jennifer, what are we hearing from the obama administration? nothing from the president or the secretary of state yet. earlier in the week the white house released this photograph of the president on the phone with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu encouraging him to accept a cease-fire with hamas brokered by the egyptian president. today the state department issues this off camera statement about egypt, quote: one of the as aspirations of the revolutions was that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution it did not mexico president morsey by name or the coo he engineered two days after meeting secretary of state clinton in cairo, jon. >> jon: was a significant move from president morsey, why now? >> essentially because he was elevated during this past week with the cease-fire agreement he was seen to be a peace maker, a power broker by both the u.s. and israel. >> he must feel now with all the international acclaim that he has got a free hand and so within a matter of days he just begins to c
and all is coming at a time when the obama administration has cut the defense budget, projecting over the ten-year period by some $487 billion and if the obama sequestration were to become a reality that would be a trillion dollars over this period of time coming out of our defense budget, even -- even the secretary of defense, the obama secretary of defense said it would be devastating. he used the word devastating. if that were not enough the obama administration continues to force the military to spend greater proportions of its already depleted funds on a gene energy agenda to include the purchase of biofuels for operational use in construction of commercial biofuel refineries. now, you know, i fully support development and use of alternative fuels including klug biofuels but not at the expense of the military. the focus should be on the readiness of the navy, not on propping up the biofuels industry. i have to remind everyone, we've a bureaucracy called the department of energy. they're the ones supposed to be doing all this experimentation we talk about. the navy according to th

, the obama administration is preparing to request more money. the white house is expected to ask congress for billions of dollars in additional aid in the wake of the storm. congressional officials say the request could top $11 billion. and could come in the next few days. the storm caused more than $70 billion in damage both in new york and new jersey. some say the second costliest u.s. disaster ever. >>> and that jersey shore roller coaster that was swept off the pier and into the ocean by the storm is going to be removed after all. the mayor of seaside heights say as what remains of that still partially submerged roller coaster would make great tourist attraction, but as he now puts it, that was not the brightest comment. >>> recovery efforts here in new york are getting a shot in the arm today thanks to firefighters from new orleans. they flew out yesterday and are starting to help their counterparts from the fdny today calling the two-week effort "big easy to the big apple." it's all payback from the aftermath of hurricane katrina when firefighters went in the opposite direction. >>>
. president obama, secretary clinton others in the administration have consistently and forcibly called on other nations to end these practices, and this will continue. each of these threats, unfortunately, will continue. they will remain part of the international landscape for some time to come. the upcoming wcit conference won't be the last international setting in which these issues arise. and all of us in the u.s. government, my colleagues at the state and departments who need to continue to work on a coordinated ongoing strategy, we will need to continue to think critically about trade to aid, updating our strategy to meet this additional moment. we have a powerful story to tell global economy story about the ways that a growing internet globally can increase economic growth and opportunity worldwide, and about the link between the growth and principles of openness, freedom, competition and private markets. one of the amazing things about this story is that is not theoretical. after two decades of global and internet growth driven by adheres to these pencils. and so in this context
wants. so, as far as emphasis around the world, that's something that's coming from the obama administration. and look, the middle east is an area that obviously has been a problem i would say for decades but really for centuries, maybe my len yeah. so that there are periods of more focus or less focus, you know, is not that surprising. i think the white house wanted to give an opportunity for direct bilateral talks between the two sides and israel or in that region. and obviously, they have not always worked as well as one would like it to happen. >> jonathan, we heard stories today of hillary clinton and president obama sharing a plane ride and sort of reminiscing about the past four years and talking back about campaign times and really is amazing how much has changed and how far they have come in four short years. >> absolutely. you know, just four years ago these guys were or this man and this woman at each other's throats politically. some of the aides hated each other. you would not have necessarily expected to see this coming together but, you know, really started on t
it could throw the country back into a recession if congress and the obama administration just can't make a deal. for many americans, the idea of a fiscal cliff is a hard one to wrap their brain around, but my next guest says the brain may be exactly what is needed get washington out of this whole mess. he is david rock, co-founder and author of "your brain at work." good morning. >> good morning to you, radi, good to be here with you. >> i have a lot to get through with you, but you say that our brains are inherently wired to categorize other people in one of two ways. in groups and out groups. can you explain what that means? >> absolutely. it's an inle function, and we see it in many other animals, including mammals as well. it's not just an american thing or western thing. it's very much a part of who we are, to decide if everyone we're speaking to is on our team or on another team. millions of years we lived in quite small communities so, we tend to only have a small number of people in our in group, and everyone else is kind of dangerous and potentially not to be trusted. it's very
on their narrative that the obama administration had decimated al-qaeda. so they ordered dr. rice, the ambassador to the u.n., to go out on the sunday shows and say that the stimulus for the murder was a video rather than a planned terrorist attack, which the am bass tore did. she followed orders. she was a good soldier. now it's all caught up to them. am i wrong? >> i think you're absolutely right. in science there is a principle which means that the simplest explanation for any physical phenomenon is most likely the true one. this is the clearest and most simple explanation for why a complete whopper was told to america on all five shows by susan rice. it did -- the real story would have gone against the narrative. remember the time frame here. we're just a week and a half after the charlotte convention. we are just after day after day after day of democrats dancing on the grave of bin laden, proclaiming al-qaeda dead since that was their only achievement in foreign policy, saying it over and over again, saying bin laden dead. so after saying that as a way to fend off all attacks on their other
give real credit to the obama administration. they have been very good on investments. president obama was the first democrat in 30 years to put out an open investment statement. why? because foreign direct investment in the u.s. creates jobs disporing portion -- disproportioned manufacturing oriented and 50% likely to be unionized. this is capital we should be fighting for. ic we need to a-- i think we need to approach trade in the second obama term with the same degree of confidence to the point michael made. the world is ready to engage with us. they proposalled -- proposed a free trade agreement. pick up on that and go with it. there's a partnership negotiated out in asia, chinese, and now part of the negotiation, but they follow it very, very closely. let's just proceed with confidence because i think people want us to succeed. >> guys, out of the way of conversation, but you mentioned china, thank goodness. john alter, up here earlier, we were in china, and everywhere we went, john would doggedly hound the chinese with what are you going to do if mitt romney wins and on day one,
for the obama administration and what in the long term? ite many important to consider -- it's important to understand this means iran is still on the march. why did hamas attack israel now? one objective was to draw israel into a broader war and get egypt to rescind its treaty with israel. and also giving it arms to attack israel. iran wants to put israel back on its heels and it wants to distract from its own nuclear weapons program and the proxy war it's fighting in syria. it changed the topic. we still have a dangerous regime and dangerous ideology of islamicism, the chief proponents which is the iranian regime. nothing in this cease-fire addresses that unfortunately. heather: what about in terms of what this means in terms of our relationship with egypt moving forward? >> a lot of people see this as a positive development which is unfortunate. egypt still has an islamist government that won very narrowly 52-48. it's very anti-israel and anti-american. it talks about restoring the caliphate in jerusalem. they are ready to re -- they can learn from pakistan that basically you can take
based on open investment policy. i will give credit to the obama administration. they have been very good on investment. president obama was the first democrat in 30 years to put out an open invest a statement? why? because foreign direct investment creates jobs that are disproportionately export-oriented, disproportionately manufacturing oriented, and are 50 percent more likely to be unionized. this is capital we should be fighting for. we need to approach trade in the second among the term with that same degree of confidence going to the point that michael made. i think the world is ready to engage. the german chancellor proposed a trans-atlantic free trade agreement. at degrees to pick up on that the bill fourth. the trans-pacific partnership negotiated out in asia. the chinese followed closely. let's just proceed with confidence because i think people want us to succeed. >> of get out of the way of the conversation, but you mentioned china. jonathan, he and i were in china. everywhere we went jonathan doggedly would hound that chinese. what are you going to do it mitt romney wins
that the obama administration has refused to give congress, citing executive privilege. >>> and 30 rock ready for its close-up. the annual rockefeller center christmas tree lighting takes place tonight here in new york city. for the past two weeks they've been decorating the tree with more than 30,000 multicolored l.e.d. lights. tonight, tens of thousands of people will crowd the sidewalks in midtown for a glimpse of the worldwide symbol of the holiday season. >> in honor of my first christmas here i am going tonight. >> that's right. good for you. >> i'm very excited. >> tonight's powerball jackpot is half a billion dollars. expected to climb even higher before the big drawing tonight. >> it is the second largest jackpot in lottery history and a record for the 42-state game. the cash payout for a single winning ticket right now is $324 million. >> and right now the state of indiana is giving away 3500 free powerball lottery tickets. it's first come, first serve. right now we have jessica hayes of our affiliate wish in zionsville with a dancing powerball mascot behind her. how is it looking o
'll disagree with that. but from my view, the obama administration has made it clear, the republicans are in the same place, though i think their anti-federal wing they have party has move today extreme. i look for a shift in inch cament -- to implementation as i mentioned and oversight, waivers that the department's granted, i understand the department is looking to release new rules on teacher preparation, accountability, i think a much-needed effort there. regardless of what those rules are, though, it seems to me this area is ripe for cooperation between the center right and center left. i also know that secretary duncan has said a few time he is wished he had done more on early childhood education. i'm not sure if they're going to propose a new initiative. i certainly hope so. but i think it's a ripe area for investment and reform. now my points are right, the blurring line the need for implementation, the need for a centrist coalition that embraces teachers and parent, that needs fighting on two fronts. while recognizing new issues will emerge that probably fuel this -- few of u
there. jennifer, thank you. jon: right now new questions for the obama administration and its changing story on what happened during the benghazi terror attack. top republicans on capitol hill want the nation's top intelligence official to explain what they say is his co conflicting testimony from the original talking points that seemed to minimize the chances that this was a terror attack. the director of national intelligence told officials in closed doors that no one in the intelligence community edited out any referral to terrorism. monday night they said it was the intelligence community that made substantive changes to the talking points. which is it? four americans died in that benghazi attack including our ambassador chris stevens. chris wallace the anchor of ""fox news sunday"" joins us now. chris, there seems to be conflicting information from the director of national intelligence and republicans say they want to get to the bottom of it. >> it's more than seems to be it apparently absolutely is conflicting. when you said which is it i hope you're not looking to me for an answ
doing it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy in america. if we do not do it in the right way, we will make mistakes. when you legislate an atmosphere of crisis, where you have a mess on your hands, you quite often do not do it very well. yes, we are experiencing some good times in energy diversity now. it seems to me now is the opportunity and a fantastic time of challenge for us to develop an overall, the national energy policy to pull things together and plan for the future and not wait for another crisis. another crisis will come. when you look at the impact of energy throughout the world, what is happening with us and how we are all interrelated, it is obvi
's told care overhaul with the acquiescence of the obama administration. the court ordered the federal appeals court in richmond virginia to consider the claim by liberty university in lynchburg virginia that obama's healthcare law violates the school's religious freedom. a federal district judge rejected the claims and the fourth u.s. circuit court of appeals or read the lawsuit was premature and never dealt with the substance in the school's argument. the supreme court upheld the health care law in june. also today the court announced its leaving in place the corruption conviction of a former louisiana congressman who had many in his freezer. justices rejected without comment an appeal by the former representative william jefferson serving a 13 year term in federal prison. he was convicted in 2009 after fbi agents investigating obligation from corruption found $90,000 in cash hidden in jefferson's freezer. a federal appeals court upheld all but one of the 11 accounts on which the jury convicted jefferson. congress is back this week following last week's thanksgiving break you listen
the second term for president obama, jim and so many others alumni will continue to play a very critical role in helping guide the administration's defense and foreign policy. with the election behind us, washington is turning its attention to the unfinished business, particularly the unfinished business of the current congress, including how to avoid falling off a fiscal cliff, how to prevent sequestration from happening and the impact that would have, not just on the defense, but domestic discretionary budget as well, and for our purposes, hopefully there will also take the time to pass a defense authorization in order to be able to set some important policy guidance that we need as we go into this next year. the hope is that obviously these issues can be resolved before the congress adjourns. and obviously we are all hopeful that the leadership will be able to come together to find a way to resolve these issues. these are tough decisions. i have been there and know how tough they are, but they can do it, they can do it. it will take some risks, but that is part of the game, yet to take ris
. the two sides have been fighting over certain documents that the obama administration has refused to give congress citing executive privilege. >>> a commission overlooking child abuse laws in pennsylvania is a result of jerry sandusky. he's serving essentially life in prison. a bit of good news for penn state, nittany lions head coach bill o'brien was awarded the 2012 big ten coach of the year award. >>> a new health concern for men with big bellies. the type of abdominal fat could indicate a higher risk for bone density loss and broken bones. a new study has found that men with visceral or deep belly fat had weaker bones and therefore a greater chance at bone fractures than men who carry fat just under the skin. >> interesting. >>> and new zealand's capital city overrun by middle earth mania. an estimated 100,000 people lined the streets in wellington for the star shoulded world premiere of "the hobbit." it's the first of three hobbit films which serve as a prequel to peter jackson's lord of the rings trilogy. it has its american premiere next week here in new york. >> do you think ameri
's address at the university in burma. they rejected me. this isn't the first member of president obama's administration to doze off. remember joe biden nodded off during the president's budget speech last year. he was thinking what he would do if he was president. former chief economic advisor larry summers could not keep his eyes open during the meeting. 5 hour energy all around, kids. >> alisyn: you can not fault hillary clinton with that travel schedule. talk about a wild encounter, we take to you texas for this one. two men were walking to a car when a deer attacked them. he jumped into the bed of the pick up and called police. >> he put his front paws on my feet, got my pack of cigarettes and started chewing them. he broke a police officer's rib, kicked a police officer in the leg. >> alisyn: the animal also caused some damage to the truck. it took more than five men to get the deer under control. >> steve: you don't hear much about how deer are apparently hooked on nicotine down there. >> alisyn: right. >> brian: remember the deer that came alive in that movie with -- in tommy bo
for the obama administration and its unshakeable support for israel's right to defend defend itself and israel's security. this is the microcosm of what this conflict is about. we're doing our utmost to minimize civilian casualties on the palestinian side. if palestinian civilians are hurt for us it's a defeat. supporters of hamas were giving out candies in the streets to kids to celebrate the bus bombing. >> what does all of this have to do with the ongoing negotiations? secretary clinton has said de-escalation. she'll meet twice with prime minister netanyahu. do you think a de-escalation is possible in the wake of this bus explosion and what we've been told according to the bbc, retaliation with a strike in gaza city? >> de-escalation is not going to be possible if hamas doesn't stop shooting at us. the last eight days, 5.5 million israelis, well over half of our entire population, have been under rocket attack. now they're under bus bombing attack. hamas shows no sign of backing down. yesterday they fired over 200 rockets at israelis, killed 200 people. that's not a good sign for de-escalat
end. but watching the obama administration through a lincoln lens has been a great education for me. and my policies had already begun to change. i felt the kind of usual left impatience. and i think that impatience is enormously important. it's an engine, lincoln said it. he really preferred, he said, to deal with people of the left to people of the right because he felt the people of the left as he said had their eyes facing and people of the right on a couple of occasions were really primarily interested in aggregating their own power and there wasn't a whole lot. they were more susceptible to secession fever, for one thing, because the main thing for them was to stay in power and any kind of ideology was acceptable and we've seen recent examples of this. so, yeah, i think that there's such a thing, obviously, as too much patience with oppression and too much -- and it's easy to be patient when you're not the person immediately suffering. but on the other hand, too much impatience can make it impossible for anything to happen. i mean, you know, the crux of the civil war was that
that not just you have me on here saying shouldn't you raise taxes, you should ask the obama administration for four years, you've done no entitlement reform. put something on the table. >> i'd like to see how all the negotiations are done. i support that. what's your second thing? >> on c-span, cnn can be there, too. secondly, when it's finished, when it's decided, write it down. put it online for seven days. so the american people can read it. don't t.a.r.p. us again, rush us and say, sign this, sign this. it's really good. let the american people read it. if we do those two things lindsey graham will not be voting for tax increase because he'll be able to find out exactly what's in it and no one will get tricked into thinking there are real spending cuts when there aren't or the tax changes are diminimous when they're not. why do the taxpayers want it open -- >> i would like to see it on cnn and c-span for sure. we always like talking to you about this. grover norquist is going to be talking to piers morgan more time tonight. obviously at 9:00 p.m. eastern time here on cnn. >> soledad? >
is what he said. >> i hope that the u.s. administration, that the obama administration can make a change by saying, look, you have to help without any condition. >> can you, final question, can you see that as playing out as a possible solution in the future? >> i think this gaza crisis was a reminder or a wake-up call for the administration. here it is, the israeli conflict is alive and we have to deal with it. when a cease-fire is reached, when the smoke settles and the dust settles, i think the u.s. will go back to a more serious involvement in the process, trying to bring the parties closer together, perhaps advancing negotiations between israel and the moderates and the palestinian authority. >> dan arbell, scholar for middle eastern policy. we appreciate it this morning. thank you. >> thank you. happy thanksgiving. >> same to you, sir. coming up at 6:30 eastern time, we'll be talking to stuart holiday, the head of the meridian international sent they are a works with the state department. >>> the latest on the breaking news with a bus explosion on tel aviv on a main street in tel a
